Ideas/tips for a 4-5 day Road Trip: Orlando to Charleston (roundtrip)

Jump to last reply

I'm flying to Orlando to spend a week at WDW with family in mid-August. I'd like to take a few days on my own for a road trip but after researching cost of a one-way car rental (ie. starting in Orlando, ending in Atlanta) vs. a roundtrip rental from Orlando, the savings of $200 to do a roundtrip rental is looking like the standout option.

It's not a long roadtrip but I'd really like to make it from Orlando - Savannah - Charleston and back within 4-5 days. I've heard a stop in St.Augustine's is very worthwhile. I really need all the help I can get with suggestions on a driving route/itinerary to make this trip feasible in this timeframe. I'm thinking about doing this road trip after WDW which would mean a roadtrip starting August 21 for 4-5 nights return.

If you have time, I'd also appreciate tips on:
- beating the heat/bugs in August
- inexpensive but comfortable accomodations
- must-see landmarks (photo ops)

THANK YOU!
